Mile High Labs sues CBD firm over unpaid bill

BROOMFIELD — Mile High Labs Inc., a wholesale CBD company supplier, is suing a client it alleges stiffed the firm on a $825,000 bill.

The suit, filed last week in U.S. District Court, claims Warrender Enterprise Inc., an Illinois-based CBD-infused product manufacturer that does business as Lifted Liquids, ordered and received 150 kilograms of extracted CBD isolate in March. “Lifted Liquids has not paid and refuses to pay Mile High for the product,” according to court documents filed by Mile High.

In court filings, Mile High claims Lifted Liquids, which is led by CEO Nicholas Warrender, agreed to pay for the CBD isolate upon receipt of the goods. 

“On or about June 14, 2019, Lifted Liquids informed Mile High that it intended to sell 130 kilograms of the 150 kilograms shipment on consignment,” according to court documents.” Mile High, however, never discussed, let alone agreed to, a consignment sale of isolate with Lifted Liquids, either in March 2019 or at any point thereafter.”

Mile High’s suit alleges Lifted Liquids engaged in breach of contract, civil theft, and fraud in connection with the unpaid March order. The company is seeking compensation of at least $800,000, legal fees and any other fees the court may deem appropriate. 

“Lifted Liquids concealed material facts when it failed to disclose its intent to buy the isolate on consignment, contrary to the parties’ prior course of dealing and contrary to the terms of the parties’ signed March 22 and March 28 Sales Orders and the April 1, 2019 invoice,” the suit said. “At the time that Lifted Liquids concealed these material facts, it knew or should 

have known that they should be disclosed to Mile High because they were critical to the 

transaction and to Mile High’s agreement to provide isolate to Lifted Liquids.”

Attorneys Marissa Ronk and Jennifer Oxley with Denver-based Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell LLP are representing Mile High in the suit. Lifted Liquids has yet to respond to Mile High’s complaint and neither party could be reached Tuesday for comment.
